  1. Yeah, I've been trying FF2 and I've also enabled proposed updates and got 61 packages, non of them firefox, but kernel/xorg/nvidia packages.
  2. :unsure: Ok, apparently that isn't it, right after I hit finish on this reply my screen crashed again... Maybe its firefox, that seems to be the common denominator when it crashes. Dunno at the moment but it is becoming increasingly annoying!
  3. One of the other annoying bugs for LTS is desktop just crashes and logs me out, seems to be compiz + nvidia. Not very nice bug whilst I'm working :)
  4. Well, I re-installed with the alternative cd so I could have encrypted lvm and now its working, could have been an update, because to me thats a pretty bad bug for an LTS release. Check the forums, many people have had problems.
  5. The thing that surprised me is it has trouble auto mounting usb drives, I've had it give up on fat32 and ext3 external usb drives. Other than that, pretty good release, would be nice to get network manager with cdma support like Fedora 9 has.
  6. OpenSuse/SuSE has always looked pretty slick, but it has always run dog slow compared to Fedora for ME. So i just stick with Fedora/CentOS :unsure:
  7. One of the updates to network manager a month or so ago on F8 was to choose "let NM control the device" or something to that effect. Not in front of my laptop at the moment. system-config-network Will show you what I'm talking about.
  8. I know this is late and I reply to post twice a year :) Easiest way to see what your kernel supports. # grep NR_CPUS /boot/config-2.6.18-53.1.14.el5 CONFIG_NR_CPUS=32 This is an i686 laptop. If your running 64-bit version on your server, it should be 64. 64 is set on Fedora 8x64 but I don't have a x64 Centos server at home. Either case if it is only 32 that should cover your 8 :)
  9. Yes, livna and freshrpms will be merged into rpmfusion at some point, I use livna now on all my box's.
  10. Since it is doing that now, I removed it.
  11. I don't like the window theme either and use Glossy + Fedora Icons and I think it looks much better, imho. I like the backgrounds too.
  12. My x64 plugin works... :) Yes, his head is cut off because of the screengrab. 1.7 is beta Why it shows sun, dunno I'm going to assume it looks like bits of it enough that it thinks it is :) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IcedTea http://icedtea.classpath.org/wiki//Main_Page http://icedtea.classpath.org/wiki/FrequentlyAskedQuestions Could it be stabler in Fedora than other distro's currently I dunno, but it works for me so far, so I'm happy.
  13. Only Apple and AT&T, the rest of us know better :D
  14. Call me simple, but this is one of my favorite software packages that will be in Fedora 8. This is Firefox x64 browser and the java plug-in is x64 as well. http://justinconover.com/images/icedtea-plugin_x64.jpg $ rpm -qa java-1.7.0-icedtea-plugin firefox java-1.7.0-icedtea-plugin- firefox- For other plugi-in's for Rawhide x64 if you want to test it out, these are what I use. http://justinconover.com/blog/2007/09/22/b...ide-x64-pre-f8/
  15. Not sure I have posted a screen shot since last year... :)
  16. The Dribble, Freshrpms and Livna teams, already joined by some Fedora contributors, are proud to announce the RPM Fusion project. RPM Fusion aims to bring together many packagers from various 3rd party repos and build a single add-on repository for Fedora and Red Hat Enterprise Linux. We aim to provide support for all 'current' versions of Fedora including devel, for i386, ppc, ppc64 and x86_64. Full details: lwn.net/Articles/249179/
  17. vmware server is pretty easy to install on any Linux.
  18. I've used freshrpms/dag/dries sine rh anything, but for some reason with 7 I switched over to livna, Matthias wasn't being as quick and Dag pretty much stays in step with rhel/centos release. I still grab a few things from Matthias(fresh) like ati/nvidia/ipw3945 drivers and rebuild them with the latest. Like artic said though, in 8 all that should get much cleaner ;)
  19. Hurm, it does work now. It didn't used to. Maybe I'm getting to old......
  20. Keep in mind there are some good reason not to alias it ;) If you want to fire a gui installer as root you wont get X widgets so you will need to use just "su" not "su -". You can always add sbin to your path to make things like that easier. vi ~/.bash_profile And add. PATH=$PATH:$HOME/bin:/sbin:/usr/sbin
  21. If it is just using the file system you wont need apache, check the example I put above for a reference.
  22. You will need to create a repo file example of mine: [justin@comatose ~]$ cat /etc/yum.repos.d/jlc.repo [jlc] name=jlc for Fedora $releasever - $basearch - jlc baseurl=file:///home/justin/rpmbuild/RPMS failovermethod=priority enabled=1 gpgcheck=0 protect=0 Notice when using a "file" location you need 3 slashes in front ///
  23. Yes, I do ;) ALSA (Advanced Linux Sound Architecture) NO. Flash, yes slow, no I just use straight BSD when I use it, so package manager I use cli and don't know much about the gui stuff. http://www.bsdguides.org/guides/freebsd/ http://www.openaddict.com/howtos.html http://www.openaddict.com/installing_freebsd_6_2.html http://www.openaddict.com/deploying_a_free..._2_desktop.html https://mandrivausers.org/index.php?showtop...&hl=freebsd
  24. What kind of machine is it? What type of hardware, video card, wireless?
  25. Check this page out: http://people.freedesktop.org/~hughsient/quirk/ FC6 was awesome at suspend, when some changes to pm-utils and hal-info it left suspend working on some at not others, but he is working on making it better and has some trouble shooting steps. Thanks,
